As others posts pictures of their children’s college graduations—the entry into the second chapter of life—Keith and I are enjoying some third-chapter-of-life fruits.
I’ve written about finding purpose in the third chapter of life and some of the insights one gains through grandparenting. There are also opportunities to look back and remember our active parenting years and how relationships change as our children have children of their own.
This weekend, my college class of 1973 marks 50 years since our graduation in Massachusetts—without me. Our church in Virginia celebrates the Ascension, the choir one alto short, the flute microphone switched off, the woman behind the music stand missing, though Keith and I will watch the service later. We are in New Jersey celebrating my daughter’s and our granddaughter’s birthdays. Priorities.
So, this week’s post is short, because we’re celebrating Third Chapter of Life blessings.
